Hi Epic,

I am not a specialist, but I know from my brother and other
experienced composers that one big reason for switching between these
is simply the different ideas and possibilities they sparkle on the
composer's mind. Once they have maxed-out on using and exploring Pd,
they switch to the text-based alternatives you mention to explore
different possibilities. But that is an all-encompassing approach from
very advanced musicians. One more or less concrete thing I can tell
you is that it seems Chuck as a language fits many people's mindset better than
SuperCollider, perhaps because of the syntax style and how it allows
for better live performance.

Anyways, these are just my 2c to get the ball rolling.
